Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars US band ESTHEMA was formed back in 2006, and released their initial album "Apart From the Rest" the following year, followed by "The Hereness and Nowness of Things". Since the release of that album the band appears to have been reinvented somewhat, with Milas and Dilisin the sole remaining members from the 2009 version of the ensemble. "Long Goodbye" is the name of their third full-length production, self-released in 2014.

While one could describe the music of Esthema in a number of different manners, I guess world fusion is the description that gives the best indication about what to expect from their latest album "Long Goodbye". A production that blend jazz- and Balkan folk-inspired music with tones and scales of a more exotic Middle East origin, with a good balance between the gentle and haunting and the firm and dramatic. Those who find this to be an appealing description or have a general interest in music described as world fusion, may regard themselves as a key audience for this album.
